Prior to using YunoJuno, Pernod Ricard UK's hiring process was lengthy and put time pressures on internal teams, having to search for freelancers without a dedicated search tool, manually running background checks, completing compliance, then arranging all the onboarding steps. Through direct sourcing within YunoJuno’s marketplace, Pernod Ricard UK have been able to build and immediately access a talent pool of diverse, quality, vetted freelancers who they can hire again and again, significantly reducing their time to hire to hours, instead of weeks.
YunoJuno’s onboarding process ensured all of Pernod Ricard UK's freelancers flow through one single point within the platform with automated right to work, identity and enhanced compliance checks. Each project is now classified to assess whether the work qualifies as an independent contractor engagement, providing an almost instant global worker classification status, for example, “inside” or “outside” of IR35 (for UK). With labour-saving compliance workflows now in place, 100% of workers are classified correctly, removing the risk of misclassification and without the need for heavy controls.
With a high volume of global projects coming in daily, Pernod Ricard UK needed one consolidated view to monitor spend, see where costs could be brought down, and access invoices in one place. By providing one source of truth within the YunoJuno platform, Pernod Ricard UK have not only cut costs but are able to assign projects more effectively, set rates accurately based on previous jobs and ensure all of their contractor workforce information is centralised for wider business insights and reporting.
